Red Brick Building Reviews
The former Pumping Station of Water Supplies Department was built in 1895. It is the oldest pumping station in the territory, even older than Tai Tam Tuk Pumping Station which was constructed in 1917. Its founding was proposed in 1890 by Osbert Chadwick (查維克), consulting engineer of the Crown Agents, who proposed in 1890 the building plan for a water supply system in Kowloon. With the supply of fresh water, commercial activities were able to take place and normal daily living was ensured. The pumping station was equipped with steam-driven pumps, which were imported from England, and able to pump an estimated 400,000 gallons of water. Except for the engineer’s office, the other parts of the pumping station have been demolished.
A lovely historic building that is incredibly rare to see in Hong Kong. Close to Yau Ma Tei MTR station.
